McPHERSON, Kan. (AP) — A 12-year-old boy has been charged in connection with the contamination of a water cooler used by a small college baseball team in Kansas.
The boy has been charged with allegedly pouring line paint used on the field into Kansas Wesleyan’s water cooler during a doubleheader against Bethany College in Lindsborg on April 24.
The McPherson County Attorney’s office says the boy has been charged with endangerment, a class A misdemeanor, and criminal damage to property, a class B non-person misdemeanor. Under the Kansas Juvenile Justice Code, these offenses are punishable by up to 9 months of supervised probation.
McPherson County Attorney Jennifer Wyatt said a summons would be issued for the juvenile to appear in court.
